Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
I returned here with friends for Open House New York. I had told them how fantastic this little synagogue was - and they were not disappointed. The stained glass, the woodwork and the loving responses from those hosting this event bespoke of how valuable and important this special museum/synagogue are to the neighborhood and to New York's history. I would...
The local park for the Chinese community is a great place to people watch especially the competitive elderly woman playing cards , its a nice area but seemingly it has a dark past with gang warfare and lots of crime a hundred years ago but in the spring sunshine it was a very pleasant diversion.
"The Law and Order courthouse. Check around back too"
reviewed 10 August 2018 by cwsfan
This is one of the most recognizable courthouses in the country. It's been the filming location for many movies and TV shows including Law and Order. It's close to several subway stops, the Brooklyn bridge and Chinatown. Take a few moments to walk around to the back of the courthouse to see the statues there as well.
Since starting a new job in Chinatown, I had wanted to visit a Buddhist temple... but since I'm not that familiar with the traditions, was hesitant to just walk into one and inadvertently be an offensive 'ugly American'. This is a great place to go if you're just curious. The actual temple is on the first floor (& was closed...

This square is defined by monumental government buildings and an abstract fountain in Lower Manhattan's Civic Center area. I felt that I really knew the New York City Supreme Court structure because of its steps, used for years on the TV series, "Law and Order." But this building's neighbor, the Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse, was even bigger and more...
I went to the one located on 42 1/2 St Marks Place (East Village); the place is small but there are 3 benches if you want to sit down and eat; the ice cream is really fresh, definitely take a moment to watch how yours is made (very cool)
Had a cafe latte which was very, very good!!
Also had the acai Bowl which was good. Added some fresh banana which was good but very expensive (2 USD or something).
Came back for a second try. Waiters were a bit stressed. Still good food, however a bit disappointed about the banana bread which were hyped by all the reviews....
Set in the midst of Chinatown and close to Little Italy, 50 B manages to provide a lovely respite from the congestion and crowds of the area.
The staff is welcoming and the surroundings are sleek and well-maintained.
My room was on the 11th floor, and it was perfect. The style is modern, clean. While the room was small and...
Clean, quiet and the location was perfect. Only 4 rooms on the floor I stayed on so no noise from other guests coming and going. The bed was even more comfortable than mine at home. Just a few steps from the heart of China Town and a few more blocks and you're in Little Italy. Also walked to Lower Manhattan,...
We booked a family room at The Leon which was spacious and consisted of 2 double beds with an en suite. It had a lovely window seat overlooking the Manhattan Bridge. The hotel was very clean and very comfortable indeed.
The concierge staff were all friendly and helpful.
We had a great time.
The hotel is walking distance to downtown...
Great location and nice, clean place. The room was not big but bigger than we expected. In theory, our room had an access to a balcony. Unfortunately the door was supposed to be sealed during some renovation and a janitor came quickly to do so. That was very disappointing. There was a roof top terrace with awesome view and a...
"Great location, friendly staff in small boutique hotel"
reviewed 16 September 2018 by zoffany
Stayed 2 nights and hotel was a great base for exploring downtown area. Plenty of excellent eating places nearby, Little Italy round the corner and located in historic area with narrow streets, small independent shops so lots to explore
